Why are Europeans so passive aggressive towards Americans? They spend their free time ranting on Vietnamese cartoon forums about how much better their poverty-ridden welfare states are when compared to the US, could anyone give me some insight into this strange behaviour?

Even towards the end of the Cold War, the worst my world culture/history textbooks said about the USSR was that it was poor and politically repressive--which, as it happens, was also a fact.

but seriously, in school when learning about america the teacher was talking about the "American way of life" and mentioned stuff like living in an RV and eating fast food every day because the Americans were always about that "on the move" lifestyle or whatever, and we talked about things like the lady that put her cat in a microwave and watched things like bowling for columbine.

It's hipsterism basically. USA pop culture is mainstream so every idiot wants to prove they are better than the sheeple by dissing it.

If that's a university then it's kind of no big deal. American universities have some pretty retard tier lower level humanities/social science classes. Here's one from the University of Michigan, which is a pretty highly ranked school:
>AAS 328 - Women, Agency and Sexual Safety
>This course will put women's bodies at the center of science by examining the problems of the current technologies designed by scientists to enable women to have control over their reproductive capacities. The problematic technologies are a direct result of women’s ideas and voices being excluded at the very concept of the scientific project. The new technologies being developed will be examined e.g., microbicides, the female condom, cervical protection. One important research question will also be investigated. Is the vagina studied only as a vehicle for sexual intercourse and child birth or is it studied beyond this function? This is a critical question when one puts women’s bodies at the center of science. This semester a new feature will be added in looking at race and women's bodies as a site for experimentation.

If that's a finnish high school though then I feel bad for yuropoors.

I'm pretty sure European history is something like

In Spanish we learned about the conquistadores, independence movements, and the different relationships between Spain and its colonies. I remember reading a lot of Argentinian articles about the big bad Brits when I was learning Spanish.

For French, we learned a great deal about French art and literature.

Why would you waste an opportunity to learn just because it's a language class?

Depends on if you take "basic" history or advanced.

Not too much in-depth history in the intro courses in my experience. Not memery, either. They mostly concentrated on the language basics.

I think he's talking about learning history within the language courses themselves. Personally, I can't speak for everyone but in my language courses we would also learn the names of cities of the country/region that spoke the language. Maybe a couple famous people, a little bit about some unique type of music or art form, and a little bit about the basic history.

He's wrong, most language classes rely heavily on culture. It's just that we learn about art, music, literature, etc. moreso than pop culture.

>>31908630
Any kind of cultural learning is purely coincidental as it comes with expanding your working vocabulary. So if you were studying Spanish for instance, you might learn what mariachi is or what tamales are if you didn't already know, but there's little to nothing in the way of discussion about where they fit into the broader culture, mainly because it's not relevant to learning to speak the language.
>>

2. When did you realise that Europe had become the embodiment of "Let me tell you about your country"?
>>
>>31908759
This. US language courses are based on immersion methods and lots of conversational performance, not just sitting in a chair and being asked about stereotypes. This is why Americans, when they _do_ learn a language, tend to learn it well.
>>
>>31905924
If you take advance placement history classes you really get in dept look. The text book was at least 7 inches thick. And I could barely read the font since it was small. But if you take regular history its really dumbed down and generalized. Then you have to wait till college to actually learn about history. But our teachers really love Europe since anyone who knows or likes it is consider cultured. So we don't learn hating you. Its that hate we receive that makes us dislike the rest of the world.

The people who treated me the rudest while I was in Europe were the Brits, and that wasn't even in Britain. The French were mostly hospitable, but also pretty ignorant and insular to an amazing extent. Germans and Dutch were insufferably arrogant while also exceedingly ignorant.

Canadians can be just as bad, actually. Which is all the more embarrassing in their case since they're basically just an encrustation along our border.

Europeans who travel to America tend to be more educated and open-minded, for obvious reasons. But they still cling to a lot of stupid ideas and prejudices. A lot of them never step outside of Manhattan and spend a lot of their time buying jeans at the Gap or eating burgers. Makes no sense.

I recently completed a 10 month trip around the world and I've decided Americans are some of my favourite people

In America everyone was friendly, food was awesome and they loved learning about Australia. I noticed that as long as you don't try to tell Americans how to live, they've very welcoming and critical about their country, it's only when you insult them that they get nationalistic.

In Europe food sucked, people were generally rude (Except Germany and Netherlands, they were bros), always talked shit about Australia and how great their own country was.

I like slinging shit about yanks, but there's no other country as generous and welcoming
